Goldberg vs. Matt Riddle Taking Place In AEW?

Goldberg Matt Riddle

Goldberg and Matt Riddle had their issues, but they settled their differences and are on good terms now.

They were even showing hugging during a WWE documentary in 2021.

During a virtual signing with Signed By Superstars, Riddle said he’d love to face Goldberg in a match and that the most likely place for this match to take place is All Elite Wrestling.

Here’s what the former United States Champion said:

“I personally would love to work with William Goldberg, he would be a great match. I think I could get something out of him that people haven’t seen in years and I think it’d be great for business.

It’d be really good for me, but at the end of the day, you can’t – if he wants to do it, he’ll do it, if he needs to do it, he’ll do it.

There’s a couple of places we could do that, I would imagine, you know maybe in AEW, TNA or NJPW. If it was going to happen, it would probably in AEW.”

When asked about the possibility of joining Tony Khan’s promotion, Riddle said:

“Yeah, honestly, I feel like a lot of the talent when I got released, were going to try to do that. I wanted to think outside the box and maybe not rush right back into doing television matches.

TV is a lot different than wrestling on the indies. There are commercials, they cut times, they change things. For me, right now, New Japan, MLW, the indies, I can display my art, and I’m not under such a crunch of time or requirement. I have a lot more freedom.

TNA isn’t out of the picture, either. There are certain things I wanted to do. I really wanted to work in Japan and I made that a priority.”
